I wouldn't worry about it too much. If he understands you and can take direction, then he understands fine. Einstein didn't talk until he was 2 years old, but I don't think anyone can say there was something wrong with his mind. :-) Kids accomplish different things at different times
Unless you suspect your boy has a hearing problem (in which case, he might not respond if you talk to him), he'll get around to talking when he's ready.

My son very rarely will say momma or dadda. The only word he really says all the time is, "go, go, go." Haha! I wouldn't worry too much. My three year old is just now starting to speak in 4-5 word sentences. He hardly did two word sentences at two. If you are worried about it, just talk to your doctor. We put my son in speech therapy at two and a half because we were worried.
It could be that he is just taking in all the different languages in your home and trying to figure out what he's suppose to say. One day he may just totally surprise you and start saying tons of words at once! It's good that he'll be learning other languages. Just remember every kid learns differently. If he understands a lot of what you say, then you really shouldn't worry. :o)

aww my son only knows how to point to his belly when you ask where it is i'm still working on on ears head and hands etc... i just want to think why he is not speaking more is because my house is a tri-lingual (3 languages) home and maybe its throwing him off a little bit???

My daughter doesn't really speak either. She knows a lot of words so if you ask her where her belly, eyes, mouth, hair is she will point to them so I'm not worried about her hearing. I also realize all babies are different, her 5 year old brother was speaking in complete sentences by now so I'm going to enjoy this quiet time with my daughter because it's true once they start talking there is no going back!
